How I got Smoother and Acne-Free Skin with Flawless


Super excited ako to blog about this cause eto na talaga ang tunay na "story of my life". Haha. When I was a teenager, never ko naging problema ang pimples that most people my age had to go through. I was blessed with "kahit anong sabon ang nasa CR, ok gamitin", lol. When I graduated, though, my imbalance started. I also took diet pills which I think affected my whole system. And with all the "blogging perks" including free soaps, facials, moisturizers, sunblock, lightening pills, creams, etcetera, I tried everything which I think caused me my worst breakout ever: 



I had to grab these photos pa from Niche's Facebook from circa 2012 wine night (haha) cause that time, dinelete ko na lahat ng pictures obvious ang pimples ko. Lakas maka low self-esteem, dagdag with the fact na kaka-braces ko lang. :p 

Although I blame trying out and layering all sorts of products because of blogging, I also thank blogging for introducing me to Flawless Face and Body Clinic. I had 1 event with them in their main office, met their CEO the generous Ms. Rubby Sy, and watched their aesthetician trainings--sold na ako to give their Advanced Acne Control Facial a try (Php980/session).


After months of going to MyFlawless for my monthly treatment, with my own money I finally availed their 8+4 promo (pay for 8 sessions, and get 4 sessions free). I already consumed the 7 sessions, 2 were used by my sister who also saw changes sa face nya after going to MyFlawless monthly.

With this card, I go to Flawless religiously na talaga once a month. I stopped using any soap except for a basic sulfur soap that I used before all the blogging freebies. I also go out of the house with no products sa face, even powder, and just use pang kilay, lip tint, lipstick, and paminsanang eyeliner for my makeup routine.


What I love also about Flawless is their service (flawless din!). I wait in their comfortable reception area for my turn. Most of the time naman weekday ako nagpupunta so di mashado matao, and no need to book for an appointment. 

Before the facial, your aesthetician will let you use the restroom since a treatment will go for 1 to 1 and a half hours, and let you keep your valuables in the designated cabinet just below your treatment seat.  She will also show and let you sign your "hygienic kit", sterilised and wrapped to ensure that tools that they'll be using for every client's facial are clean. A thick head wrap will be placed to keep your hair away from your face.

As far as I can remember, here the steps in Advanced Acne Control Facial: 
1) It starts with aromatherapy, the therapist lets you breathe peppermint oil to relax before the actual session.
2) Cleansing - using foam cleanser, to remove makeup and excess dirt and oil.
3) Softening cream
4) Cotton pads with eye cream were placed in the eyes before the steam. During my latest visit last Sunday, my therapist also placed lip gloss to moisturize my lips!
5) Steam - around 20 minutes, to open up pores before extraction.
6) While waiting, hands will be massaged and then wrapped with warm bead wraps, and sealed with cute pink fluffy mittens!
7) Vacuum / Suction to make pricking more bearable.
8) Alcohol-free toner
9) The pinaka dusa sa lahat: Pricking! Haha.
10) Gauze+Laser - to close pores
11) Moisturizer
12) Mask - I love the cold mask that comes with this facial. Relaxing and super mabango, plus may option to cover even the eyes and mouth.
13) Final anti-inflammatory cream


Aside from the Advance Acne Control Facial, here are the other services from Flawless. Because my facial is so effective, I am excited to try some of these as well, and also their anti-acne facial products. Any users here? :)


Of course, kailangan my "after" photos! Haha! I guess it's safe to say I've been going for my monthly Flawless facial na for a year! #AlagangFlawless! 




No photoshop, and I don't use foundation and concealer na! I still get 1-2 pimples from time to time lalo na pag nasestress or "that time of the month", but overall, I am proud and confident of my skin more than ever. :)

    1. Hello! :) Sakin kasi before it worked well - maganda yung acne control facial nila and till now kahit wala nakong acne I still go for it every 2 months nalang. Also I used Flawless soap (acne control din, pink box). It depends din siguro sa response ng skin mo, so try it muna and sana maging okay :) Let me know!

    By the way, I noticed that not only your pimples were gone, but your skin got lighter too. Are you using other treatments/products that made your skin lighter? :)

    1. Hi! :) I am not sure about age and stuff, but you can visit the nearest Flawless sa inyo so you can consult sa professional skin doctor. :) As for redness, siguro half a day sakin.. But that's because sensitive skin ako :) Others madali lang mag subside. :)

  15. Sis, Alam mo ba ung blog mo ang nakapag-encourage sa akin na itry ung Flawless, nung Oct. 24, I had my Advanced Anti Acne too! He he, nakakatuwa ung aesthecian ko, bawat procedure na gagawin niya, sinasabi niya sakin, tapos sabi nila every 2 weeks dapat ako bumalik. Ikaw ba? :)

    1. When I started and had super daming acne I had it once in every 2-3 weeks! :) But once a month will do, too, lalo if you're on a budget like me. :)

    2. Sis, advance acne control facial lang ba ang treatment mo? Or nagpa-chemical peel, fnt ka rin?

    3. Hi! I always read this story of yours since I started going to Flawless. I started I think last October this 2016 lang. I am also dealing with this "ugly" acne break out, the cause I think was, I used this commercial product and then after a couple of weeks, bam! hello pimples na. This is the worst acne break out for me. I am literally crying everyday, I don't want to see myself in the mirror, I don't wanna go out or go to work cause I dont want others to witness how I look today, to cut this short, I know I am being too hard on myself. But then, I started having this Advance Acne Control Facial plus salicylic peel (cause they told me that this salicylic peel will help me fight those 'effin acne), the Doctor told me that I must do it every week for a faster healing and results I guess. I had 2 sessions and on my 3rd na this week,well I can see naman na my pimples were dry na, I still get a pimple or two pero hindi na tulad before na malalaki. Now, my problem are those scars, I wanted to try their easy peel, but I cant be absent for 1 week.
      I just wanna ask you sana, before when you were just starting to have their facial and etc, did you get a lot of scars also? And what did you do to make them all disappear? And how many sessions did you have simula nung napansin mo na hindi ka na talaga nagkakaron ng new pimples?
      Your response will be much appreciated. Thank you, keep on inspiring us! ❤️

    4. Hello Khylee! Super relate huhu, hiya talaga ako noon lumabas coz I never had pimples nung teenager ako.. NGAYON PA! What I did before was regular once a month Flawless Advanced Acne Control Facial lang talaga. Tapos I use the pink set (minsan may free facial pa when you get that, dagdag nalang onti for the mask). May deep scars din ako noon, wala ako ginawang drastic basta tuloy tuloy lang ako mag facial. I think 4th-6th month ko nakita yun improvements. Tuloy tuloy padin sha now coz nakita ko when I stop for a while nagkaka pimples uli ako. Lalo when I experiment din with other products. Di na dapat pala! :p Sana maging okay na din your skin.. Let me know how it will go ha!
